    Ok so i was driving my lincoln ls 3.9 and out of nowhere i see a lot of smoke coming out thru the back so i pull over and open the hood and see all the coolant coming out from a hose. I couldn't drive the car anymore so i had it tow to my house. Being at the house i try to reconnect the hose back to its place but i cant find where it connects to. The hose is on the left side of the radiator (passanger side) kind of next/under the water pump if anybody could help me i would really appreciate it 20190305_121556.jpg 20190305_121556.jpg

    Always give sides (left/right) of a car as if you are sitting in the driver's seat. That cut's down on confusion. You are talking about the right side, not the left.

    It's not as simple as reconnecting that hose. The plastic barb that it is connected to has broken off. It's time for you to replace all the plastic cooling system parts.

    Looks like it may go the the bottom of the upper radiator hose, just based on the hoses location in relation to the upper radiator hose. Feel along the bottom of the plastic section of the upper radiator hose there should be a broken barb like joegr stated above.

    2000-2002 LS V8 3.9 Upper radiator hose part number KM4402 or (original part number WX4Z-8260-BA) can get on Rockauto for $32.89.
